My students need a way to securely move tools from our makerspace to various sections of the school.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students love to work with their hands to make. The only limitations are their imaginations and where they can work. Since we opened our makerspace, creativity has grown and we are looking to expand our making beyond the original classroom.
My students work to build collaborative skills and perseverance by working together to solve problems.
They attend an urban elementary school (K-8) in Pennsylvania and range in age from 5 to 14, with the focus of this project being on our 5th through 8th-grade students.
My students need to be able to move tools around the school for projects. We are asking for a mobile tool chest to securely store and move hand tools and power tools around the building.
Making is slowly becoming more prevalent in our classrooms and not just in our makerspace.
Beyond our school, the maker movement as a whole is showing that hands-on projects where students create, rather than recite, is improving student outcomes.
If we want to continue this trend, we need to be able to work on things outside of just the original space, allowing students to complete the same caliber of work in their own classrooms or even outside.
